A big congratulations to Year 7 students on their great start at JBHS. We are proud to see our values of equality, safety, excellence and respect being upheld by Year 7 students on the playground and in the classroom. Don’t forget to check your timetable so that you can bring all your equipment each day, especially your leather shoes and sports uniforms when you need them. Now that you are aware of our rewards system for positive behaviour, we look forward to seeing all the merits Year 7 students can collect this year. Congratulations to the students who are always on their way submitting the first 6 merits!
Keep up the good work,
Ms Byrne and Ms Phan

Hello Yr 9,
It has been great to see you all back for 2021! It has been really encouraging to see that the majority of you have settled in really well and have taken all these changes into your stride. I look forward to another year together and I know that this year will see a lot of you strive towards excellence and achieve great things!
I have the upmost faith in your ability to be shining examples to all your younger peers and the whole school community and to make all the positive choices to make the 2021 school year your best one yet!
Welcome to 2021. I hope that you have a great start to the year. It seems that most people have remembered our school values and are practising them on a daily basis. It is important that you remember that GRATITUDE and KINDNESS goes a long way and it will be reciprocated. It should be noted that punctuality to classes, bringing the correct equipment to school and wearing the school uniform are all very important aspects of James Busby life as you are made well aware of on a daily basis.
If you need to reach out to anyone at school for academic or welfare reasons, keep in mind that you have a plethora of people that are able to assist you. You also have an abundance of resources that you are able to utilise while you are at school to make this happen. Ensure you are making use of the digital resources available to you such as Google Classroom access to achieve your best possible.
You may be interested in seeking casual employment or other so make the most of opportunities that are directed your way. See Mr Kwon, the Careers Advisor or us to seek further information.
As this year is the determinant for your pathway to come, whether it be employment, TAFE or University, put your best foot forward and strive for your best completing all tasks within the time frame given.
If you have any questions or issues to discuss, remember that we are available for you. Ms Cau in E27 and Ms Narayan in C8.
Yours in advising,
Ms. Cau & Ms. Narayan

Dear Year 12,
Congratulations on finishing another term of your final year!
A lot has happened this term. Students have been doing work placements, and assessment tasks have been coming thick and fast. Just remember to do your best and ask for help from your teachers or from Ms Walsh and I.
Fundraising for our Formal and graduation has been going really well! Chocolate boxes have been flying off the shelves! Special shout out to Adam Cowell-Brough who has already sold sixteen boxes of chocolates. Not only has Adam completely paid-off his Formal ticket, he is now fundraising to make our night extra special. Remember, the more money we raise, the better the night will be! Last week, we began selling gelatos at the end of the day, and wow, are they popular! I can’t thank those students who are stepping up to help out by volunteering their time and energy to help fundraise enough. You are all wonderful and truly appreciated.
We have a lot to look forward to this term! The Athletics Carnival is around the corner! Not only is it a great day to show off our athleticism, it’s also another opportunity for us to fundraise!
I’m looking forward to what the rest of the year holds for our grade.
Have a fantastic end the term!
Ms. Hall and Ms Walsh
